NFL cornerback Richard Sherman has been arrested on a charge of burglary domestic violence following an incident at his in-laws.
According to the 911 audio obtained by KIRO, Sherman’s wife, Ashley Moss, Sherman was drunk and threatened to commit suicide. She was also being aggressive and had gotten physical.
“He’s threatening to kill himself,” Moss said. “He has sent text messages to people saying he’s going to hang himself… This is like a f— emergency, I need officers here now.”
The police say that Sherman tried breaking into his in-laws’ home and tried to calm the situation down. Sherman calmed down until he was placed under arrest and then he began to fight back, allegedly.
“At this time we’re going to make no statements, except he didn’t harm anybody,” Moss told The Seattle Times. “My kids were not harmed in the incident. He’s a good person and this is not his character. We’re doing alright, just trying to get him out. I want people to know no one was injured.”
